Plant ecology and plant-animal interactions

My research focuses on pollination ecology.  I am particularly interested in how plants manipulate pollinator behavior and ways in which pollinator behavior in turn influences plant ecology and evolution.  I am also happy to advise thesis projects related to pollinator conservation, including community-engaged projects.

My courses include Biostatistics, Organismal Biology, Conservation Biology, and the Ecology and Evolution of Mutualisms.
